Not sure what to say except I'm a Canadian artist specializing in fantasy imagery, with a fondness for chimeric creatures, animation and comic books. I am (finally!) getting ready to release my own fantasy web-comic, Kentauroi.
I know it has been a loooooong time between my most recent upload today and my last. Since it's been so long, I figured people may be curious as to why. There are a couple reasons.

First, there was problems with chronic tendonitis. I simply could not draw for very long at all without crippling pain in my hand. I have been doing stretches, exersizes, resting from the painful activity (mostly mouse use, but also drawing to a slightly lesser extent), I got a left handed mouse, massages, hot and cold packs, I started taking fish oil capsules.... It took AGES, but  I have FINALLY got it under control. It's still very much at risk, so I can't draw as much as I used to or I risk just going back to that again, but I can now get a few pictures out.

Secondly, just as my hand was beginning to heal, my computer had a total meltdown. I had a water cooling unit on my motherboard. It sprung a leak... while the computer was running. Motherboard/CPU, video card, power supply, my C drive, all toast. I had to build a new system from scratch.

but, I am back up and running now, and I will be uploading pictures again!

May great rulers, just and wise, summon you to appear before them so that they and their cheering subjects may honor you this year.  May joy and friendship support and richen your merry-making, and visions of glorious color and sophistication lurk ready at your calling to assist you in your art and help you lift the world's spirits with beauty, enhanced and shared.  May every sun that sees you this year rejoice in your happiness, may a year from today find you wiser, happier, more skilled, and rejoicing at the thought of another HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
